Morgan Stanley analyst…

Morgan Stanley analyst Omar Sheikh downgraded WPP to Underweight from Equal Weight with a price target of 850 GBp, down from 950 GBp. The analyst sees early indications that economic pressures in Europe are reducing some advertising budgets. The deceleration in global GDP growth is likely to be similar to after dotcom bubble burst, when organic growth for WPP and Publicis fell by 20 percentage points and multiples compressed by 70%, Sheikh tells investors in a research note. The analyst anticipates quarterly organic growth for both companies will turn negative in the second half of 2022 or early 2023.

WPP and Epic Games, the…

WPP and Epic Games, the interactive entertainment company and developer of Fortnite and Unreal Engine, announced a new partnership to help WPP agencies deliver a new era of digital experiences for brands in the metaverse. The partnership will include a new training program to upskill thousands of WPP creatives and technologists on how to create custom brand experiences in Fortnite, and how to use Unreal Engine for real-time 3D creation and virtual production. This new metaverse curriculum will consist of three separate tracks for executives, creative practitioners, and media experts and strategists. Early to invest in the tools and talent needed to succeed in the metaverse, WPP believes that brands and creators have a tremendous opportunity to meet the need for connection and unlock unlimited creative potential within interactive virtual spaces. For brands embarking on this journey, success in the metaverse is dependent not only on creative excellence but deep production capabilities, sound strategies for amplifying digital experiences and expert knowledge of a complex online safety and privacy landscape. As a part of this partnership, WPP teams will work closely with experts at Epic to learn how to build next-generation interactive experiences leveraging Unreal Engine, an advanced real-time 3D creation tool used across a range of industries including games, film, architecture, fashion, automotive, music and live events. WPP teams will be able to take advantage of training and tools to create new experiences in Fortnite, where creators can build imaginative worlds for brands inside of one of the most globally popular online games. WPP has previously collaborated with SuperAwesome, an Epic Games company, to produce innovative work such as the immersive Island built for Adidas in Fortnite for its Ozweego sneaker line. WPP will also work with SuperAwesome to deepen its understanding of online safety and privacy to help its campaigns engage younger audiences safely.

We continue to support our people in Ukraine, many of whom are now displaced, with financial and practical assistance. Our partnership with the UNHCR on their emergency fundraising appeal has generated $150 million to date, including over $1.3 million from our employee match-funding programme. On 4 March, we announced that we would exit the Russian market, and we have now reached agreement to divest our businesses there.
